Welcome Harry K....Has anyone installed and driven with these tie rods-my concern would be that the threaded portion would still be the same diameter as the stock units and from what I've read,that is where the OE tie rods bend/break.Expecting my X in the next week or 2(not too excited to be reading about all the tie rod problems guys are having)-Had an 85 Honda Oddy and tried making larger diameter tie rods(machined the ends down to use the OE tie rods)still bent and broke-ended up modifing some car tie rods. Alot of the trails up here in Alberta are only Quad wide and a little misjugdement will make for bad day if the OE tie rods are that weak.
Nice Catch for sure....65/pair did seem a REALLY good buy, didn't it?....LanceIt appears to be for only one. If you enter 2 it goes to 130.00. Good Call. That being the case I would spend the extra 70 bucks and get the 2X Billet units with Hiem joints, high angle spacers and 1" Hex tie rods.
Agreed...bend or break sometime expendable is the way to have it......if the ends are too strong, it may be major $$$ if the rack takes the beating.....may not be the best idea to bulletproof the tie rod ends.....time and peeps input later will tell......LanceThere has to be a weak link and better the tie rod than the rack.
That price and part # is for one rack end. Thanks.Is it a pair ?
